Waiting for O
71
Wed, 09-21-2011 - 2:37pm

Does anyone else here feel that waiting for ovulation is way more stressful then the 2ww? Maybe it is because I am not sure that I have a regular cycle yet, but I find myself very stressed before I O. I am compulsive about doing OPKs 3x a day so I don't miss my surge. I find myself checking my temperature chart

UPDATE: Seriously... I am spotting now... WT_ is that? A 19 day cycle? I have had that but not in a while... usually it follows an unusually long cycle (hear that is normal, a way of self correcting...). Maybe it's mid cycle spotting, that happens too, could be implant too. It is accompanied by sudden onset cramps though that feel like AF cramps. I really don't think I am all that stressed out about it all, but its stuff like this that makes me insane!

I sure hope you are right, or at least that it is mid-cycle bleeding... The latter seems more probable considering my chart. I am thinking it is because I started taking DHEA this cycle. It was apparently quite a high dosage, 50mg. I read it can cause irregular periods. I stopped taking it a couple of days ago just because I was being lazy about it but it could totally have been the cause. I think this DHEA was the only bad decision I have made among all of the other things I've done to up my chances. Still FX'ing though ;)

2nd spot day...crampy like AF. I really think it is the other half of the short/light AF I got on Oct 19th. Now wishing this would get heavier so I can call it that and start over on CD1... This time no DHEA. Glad I only took it for 5 days (not sure that it caused this, but the reports made me think the better of taking it without a dr's suggestion).

Michele, I wish I had an answer for you. I'm not sure what is going on-

Thanks Vickie! I don't mean to sound completely discouraged, I'm not. But this all sure has me trying to make sense of it all... baffling! :)

Cd 12 today and still waiting to O. My temps seem like they are all over the place. FF thinks that I should O on cd14 after they took all my averages. I don't know how you get cd14 when I have had 1 anovolatory cycle, a cd 13, cd17, and cd7, but it will be interesting to see when it happens. I am peeing on about 4 opks a day, just for something to do. Think that I'm cracking up, lol. Wait, wait, wait, and more wait.....feels like Christmas Eve!

I know what you mean by wait, wait and wait- one would think we are the most patient people on the planet because we are always waiting for something! I still have no patience after all this time.

I guess I'm here. CD 7, temp finally went to

Vickie,

I know what you mean about wishing you would O later....my last cycle was CD7 w/out clomid. Dr was excited that I O'd on my own. Have you talked to your Dr about something you could take/do to lengthen the first part of your cycle? I know that when I am on clomid my O date is much later.

Hugs to you

Thanks Mel. I will ask her about it. I looked back at my charts and I have O'd before CD 10 every cycle (except
